Dr Ravi said, “As many as 121 anaemic people are being given medical services and awareness about nutrition. Medical tests are being conducted at every house and their health information is being digitised.

Dr Davidu, Medical Officer, Chataparru PHC, said that people in rural areas are getting better medical services at their homes through the ‘Family Doctor’ brought by the government. The family doctor system is very useful for those who cannot go long distances for medical treatment and the poor. The government has appointed two doctors in each PHC, he added.

The staff including 104 mobile units along with the doctor and Asha workers are conducting medical tests in this concept. Similarly, for the continuation of medical services for those who have received medical treatment under Aarogyasri, they are going to the homes of those who are unable to walk due to paralysis and are unable to walk due to nerve weakness.
